Don't get me wrong, I love him very much and think hes amazing, but man... This is the same guy that can drive to the basket at will that i've seen all season long, right? I mean im fine with him taking those jump shots, tonight they were not falling however so I just don't get why he doesn't drive to the rim like hes fully capable of.
Don't tell me because of Bynum and Gasol etc, there were times when Bynum was contesting his shot (Well I might add) that he could of just blown by him. EVEN if he didn't score there's always the chance he gets sent to the line.
I mean I just don't get it, Durant drove some tonight too but honestly, when we were in the bonus with like 10:00 minutes remaining, I would of just had a field day driving to the bucket between Russell, KD and James... Whats the outcome? Maybe a turnover here and there? Sure, but also scoring because these dudes can finish, or being sent to the line and causing even more foul trouble for the Lakers.
Sorry, I had to vent, but sometimes I just don't know what they are thinking. I know its a lot easier for me to just say "drive to the basket" than it is to do all the time, but you get what i'm saying... Doing it a lot more often wouldn't hurt...
